My family had a fantastic day fishing for Stripers off Monomoy Island, Cape Cod with Eric Stapelfeld of Hairball Charters. We caught more Stripers than we could count, and had a great experience (and truly an effortless one on our part - they did all the work!) on the water thanks to Eric and his son. Hairball Charters offers a family-friendly environment with safety being top of mind. Eric had multiple life preservers for kids of all sizes, and he made sure to keep an extra watchful eye on the kids the entire time. Going out on a charter with Eric, a charter captain with decades of experience in these waters, makes all the difference in the world. He knows where the fish are and how to catch them, and everyone has a great time. On top of all that, we found the rates to be quite affordable. I highly recommend giving Eric a call if you're looking to charter a fishing boat on Cape Cod.

Fishing with Capt Eric is what you dream of when you think of big stripers and Cape Cod. In less than 5 hours of fishing, Hairball Charters put on nonstop action, landing 70 linesiders in total! And the action wasn’t limited to schoolies. By the end of the trip, we had a dozen bruisers over 38”, the largest being a monster at 46” and well over 40 pounds! Captain Eric’s home-made jigs and unique technique, coupled with his lifelong experience of the tides and area, put us on the fish all day long for the best day of fishing ever. Highly recommend Hairball Charters! Tight lines!

Captain Eric was simply an amazing captain! We did an afternoon departure out of Falmouth and Eric took us all the way to Martha’s Vineyard. Eric has been fishing for 30 Plus years and knows the waters like the back of his hand. Eric and his son Eric, took care of setting us up with the lines in the water and coached us on how to jig. We caught several fish on this charter! Captain Eric’s experience is phenomenal and he made sure that we got to catch fish. If you’re coming to Cape Cod, book a trip with Hairball Charters… you will be VERY thankful that you did!!!

Great trip with Captain Eric and his son! Great clean boat, caught striped bass and bluefish, they filleted the stripers and we took them home. He knows exactly where to go. Was a great time!

What a great experience with captain Eric! Me, my wife, and three boys had an absolute blast crushing stiped bass all morning. Captain eric put us on the fish first thing in the morning and we were on them constant into the afternoon. The great memories will be with us forever. We will certainly be booking with hairball charters on our next trip to cape cod.

We spent a week in Mashpee, MA and wanted to go fishing. We were booked, but our captain had some boat issues and called another captain to see if he could take us out. He did and we had a great time. He took us to a couple different spots until he found the perfect spot. Great couple and very personable. They cleaned and cut our cat h so we could have it for dinner that night. I would totally use him again for any fishing charter. Great guy!!!

Capt Eric did everything in his power to make for a great half day of fishing. He was on top of getting us set up, searching for schools of fish, helping us upon catching both striped bass and bluefish. Our hands were barely ever dirty. Seats were comfy. There is a little shade. Only complaint is the motors are very loud.

I read some of the other reviews after we returned from being with Eric and Ryan Last Thursday and Friday 6/15-16. Don't believe a word of them. The experience was even better then previously documented. Best Charter I have EVER been on, hands down. These boys know how, where, when and what to use. Find out for yourself. Just don't book our two days in June 2018. Bill, Phil and Mike

Eric took me out for a 5 hour afternoon trip, the fishing at first was very hard. The wind was blowing and Eric thru no fault of his could not hold any of his marks. At 5pm Eric said he would like to stay out longer as the wind was dropping and the tides were going to be good at 7pm. True to his word at about 7pm we were on a shallow mark and the bites started. 11 good fish in about 1.5 hours. This was the first time that i had caught strippers, and what a good fish they are! not hours on end fights but a good 5/10 mins per fish. The last being my best, not earth shattering but in the mid/upper 20s. By the time we got back to the dock it was 9pm, I would like to say that I have chartered in many countries all around the world and this guy was the most helpful and pleasant as well as a very knowledgable skipper. MANY THANKS
